Man City interested in Spain and Barcelona midfielder Busquets
Wednesday 17 October 2012
Roberto Mancini could look to solve Manchester City’s central midfield issues with an attempt to bring Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets to the Etihad Stadium.
The Premier League champions brought in Javi Garcia and Jack Rodwell in the summer before selling Nigel de Jong but the Daily Mirror are reporting that Mancini could look to break the bank for the Spain international, who has been at the heart of his country’s 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 triumphs.
A move to the Manchester would reunite Busquets with former Barcelona teammate Yay Toure, who Pep Guardiola deemed dispensable at the Camp Nou in the summer of 2010 after Busquets had displaced the powerful Ivorian in the Catalans’ starting line-up.
Busquets currently has 50 caps for Spain after making his debut in April 2009 and was in Vicente Del Bosque’s side for their 1-1 draw with France in Madrid on Tuesday night which ended their 100% start to World Cup qualification.
